Teresa Berry 3rd Dec 2019

We wish to thank Jane, Steven and Suzanne and staff at White Rose for all their care and attention, especially Jane who made a horrible time so much easier by being genuinely there for myself and husband at the loss of his mother, Doreen Berry every detail possible was sorted and all the arrangements were sorted without any issues. We are pleased that we have used a local funeral director who also works with others in the local community, e.g. we have found the florist and floral tributes from Mapplewell florist amazing. Debbie from Hearts and Flowers florist, my go to florist in the future for any floral needs. If there can be any such thing as a nice funeral Doreen had that with all the details personalized to her to give her the best we possibly could at an affordable price. I would recommend White Rose funeral Directors to anyone Thank you. Teresa Berry

Our heartfelt thanks to Stephen and Suzanne at White Rose Funeral Services for the kindness, empathy and compassion we were shown from our first meeting right through to the day we laid our Mother to rest. Their kindness has helped us through the most difficult time and to have been able to give Mum such a beautiful funeral on a very tight budget has helped us immensely. I would recommend this service without hesitation.

    Thank you Stephen & Susanne for taking care of our late mum's funeral (Tess). You both went above & beyond in the service that you offered & as a family we would like to say a massive heart felt thank you to you both. We would highly recommend you to all & your kindness, care & attention to detail was very much appreciated. From the moment we initially rang to enquire & Susanne answered our call, we were put at ease immediately & the home visit from Stephen just reaffirmed that White Rose Funerals was the right choice to take care of our mum. Given the circumstances, how refreshing and uplifting it was to find a loving family run business that really do care & go that extra mile. Thank you from the Garlick & Black families.

    Stephen Tomes replied
    So many thanks for your lovely words. We care so much for our families who choose us as their Funeral Director. We thought that the funeral your family organised for Tess was beautiful and personal. Although a very sad day, the weather was beautiful, the service was beautiful, the flowers were stunning and allowing Tess's grandaughter to be involved with the flower arrangement was lovely. We wish your family all the very best and if there is anything you need from us we are always at the end of the phone. Stephen and Susanne x

    White Rose Funeral Service took care of my late fathers funeral recently, I would 100% highly recommend Stephen and Susanne for all that they did for us. We met with Stephen to go through all the funeral plans and he was extremely patient and helpful with any questions we had. Susanne was taking the funeral on the day and put me at ease straight away letting me know things as they unfolded. White Rose recommended Jane, a celebrant who talked about my fathers life who also would do anything to help us. She put together a lovely speech and emailed back and forth to make sure it was what we wanted. White Rose made the whole experience a breeze and I'd like to thank the whole team for everything that they did!

    Stephen & Susanne were fantastic in making arrangements for our Father's funeral. They made the process extremely easy and kept in contact via e-mail and phone regularly to ensure everything was perfect and it was. We would definitely recommend them to anyone requiring a funeral director within the Leeds area.

    Stephen Tomes replied
    Dear Nicola and family, many thanks for your lovely review. Under the circumstances it was really nice to meet you and Mark. We would like to thank you for entrusting your Dad in to our care. Regards, Stephen and Susanne

    White Rose Funeral Service are excellent at what they do, they treated my dad with dignity and care and did everything they could to make this hard time a little bit easier. The service for my dad was beautiful and I can’t thank them enough. 

    Stephen Tomes replied
    Dear Georgia, Many thanks for your lovely review. It is always a pleasure when families entrust us with their loved ones. We always ensure that you only receive the very best from us and I am happy that we could make this distressing time that little bit more easier. My regards go out to you you, your mum and the rest of your family.
  • 5 Anthony Nicholson 2nd Feb 2018

    Susanne and Stephen were superb. Respectful, kind, thoughtful and dignified, without being maudlin, and incredibly efficient in a calm and friendly way. Everything went smoothly and was exactly as promised, which is a huge relief on a stressful day. And no hidden charges, or unexpected extras, on what was a very reasonable bill. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

  • 5 Daniel Mercer 26th Aug 2017

    What an amazing company, so very helpful on every thing, guided me and my family through all the things required, and helped us out when it came to things financially! The service they provide is excellent! and the cost of their services are fantastic too! I don't think we could have done the funeral for our mother with out them! Thank you Stephen @ White Rose Funeral Services!

  • 5 Nicola Brooker 28th Apr 2017

    From the moment that i first spoke to suzanne on the phone i knew i was in good hands. Here i was in the midst of the most traumatic experience of my life and she put me right at ease and told me everything would be ok. I was on the phone for nearly an hour i just needed to talk and even though technically she was off that day packing for a trip it wasnt any trouble. She told me i could call her anytime i needed, which i did a few times and texts flew back and forth i always got a reply maybe not within 30 seconds but as soon as she was able. I met stephen at the offices and just as with suzanne i was put at ease nothing was an inconvenience no question too stupid to ask. The whole experience was made so much easier . The funeral itself went ahead without me having to worry about anything oeverything i needed was done sorted out ahead of time. Even a few days after i have needed to speak to them they havent hesitated and made sure i am ok  Losing my husband has been the hardest thing i have ever had to endure in my life but they made it that tiny bit brighter throughout my darkest days Thank you for everything  Nicola Brooker

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.
